This course allows you to explore the ways in which art has been produced and received by different communities over the last 2,000 years. We do not take for granted that â??artâ?? has been understood in the same way around the world through time. Youâ??ll learn about the history of art and to think critically about its development and effects, examining the social history of art in a challenging and thought-provoking way. Youâ??ll consider some of the theories and approaches, from aesthetics to anthropology, that can help us to interpret works of art. Youâ??ll choose from a wide range of optional modules to focus on topics that suit your own interests. These include studies of ancient Greek art, African sculpture, Japanese photography and Hollywood blockbusters, as well as contemporary art practice.
Year 1: Compulsory modules: A story of art; and elements of visual culture; elective modules. Year 2: Students continue to take a mix of core courses, electives and options. Year 3: Students complete a dissertation on a subject of personal choice; option and elective modules.
